Longoria or Freeman?

Postby stlcards02 » Fri Dec 06, 2013 9:02 pm

20-team, Pts league, 8 keepers

Another team has Freeman and I have Longoria. On one hand, Longoria plays 3B, which is shallower in a 20-teamer. Then Freeman, I just like a ton. My dilemma is that if I do trade for Freeman, that would fill up both Utility spots (we carry two) and would make my roster less flexible, giving me 3 1B and 3 OF. I'm looking at other trades too for middle infield. Our roster is the normal positions plus the two util's.

Keepers as of now:

1B Goldschmidt
3B Longoria
OF A Jones
OF Ellsbury
OF Holliday
Util: Encarnacion

P Kershaw
P Darvish

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I'd keep Longo for the reasons you stated. 3B much shallower in that league and you already have goldy and EE. Longoria, if healthy, easily outperforms FF in my opinion

Agreed you keep Longoria here. Just doesn't make roster sense plus Longoria us the best player here. I like Freeman but not in this deal.

Is E5 3b eligible in your league? He got some starts at 3b (might qualify?)
Still in your shoes I'd pass. I'd look to acquire a top shelf 2b. Maybe a top 3 pick, Holiday and Darvish for Cano and Everth Cabrera or Elvis Andrus?
